Have you applied for the Cal Grant?

A Cal Grant is money for college you don’t have to pay back. To qualify, you must apply for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) by the deadline and meet the eligibility and financial requirements as well as any minimum GPA requirements. Cal Grants can be used at any University of California, California State University or California Community College, as well as qualifying independent and career colleges or technical schools in California.

There are three kinds of Cal Grants — A, B and C — but you don’t have to figure out which one to apply for. Your eligibility will be based on your FAFSA or CADAA responses, your verified Cal Grant GPA, the type of California colleges you list on your FAFSA and whether you’re a recent high school graduate.

This grant provides scholarships to 21 clinical psychology doctoral students from disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in pursuing a career in primary care psychology. Eligible students include those from educational or economically disadvantaged backgrounds and priority is given to students from racial and ethnic minority groups under-represented in the health sciences. The scholarship award is for up to $30,000 per year and can be renewed for 3 years (for a total of $90,000). In addition to receiving up to a 43% reduction in student loan debt, our 4P Scholars also benefit from enhanced peer and faculty mentorship opportunities and enriched training experiences in primary care.
